I've basically contact mic'd the upstairs bedrooms and various parts of the house, including various appliances (ones that run day-round) and windows/backyard (for outdoor sounds). the idea was to do a live, real-time mix, processing the sounds of the sleeping family/house, and gradually lifting off...slowly separating to outdoor sounds, then to local radio sounds, longwave...mediumwave...shortwave....then finally to a live radiotelescope feed.
the idea is this gradual takeoff from a sleeping bed to deepspace...something that, when i was a kid, i sometimes used to think actually happened (i thought that my bedroom would kind of separate from the rest of the house and blast off into the cosmos when i fell asleep)(I don't think this anymore, btw)...a recent re-discovery of some of harris burdick's drawings made me want to do this...'

I thoroughly enjoyed this recording. It is full of great sounds, from drones and noise to sound frequencies from all over the sound spectrum. There are also voices in the noise, or, at least, I heard them, and, I would love a transcript of what the voices were saying. I would love more recordings of this type. You will not get bored with this one, although you may go to sleep. Either way, its a great experience. Padge.
